We are in full swing with holiday crafts mode right now, so here is a cute and easy suncatcher craft kids will love for the season! A few days ago both my 5 year old and three year old daughter did some fun kindergarten sight word activities post that involved matching and and letter sounds too. So remember to check that out as well!
These activities are also great for preschoolers, toddlers, kindergartners, and beyond! Just grab some of the supplies below and honestly you can be as creative as your kids will allow 🙂
The set up for this was easy but did take some prep time. It took some time to get all of the supplies prepared and setup so the kids could just enjoy it. So take a look at how we did this Christmas project!

Easy Suncatcher Craft For Kids
The Materials were super fun for the activity and the outcome was so adorable! It looked so good that we decided to keep it up on the door.
- Con-Tact clear adhesive paper or clear adhesive liner ( this is what I used, bought from Walmart pickup :))
- Construction Paper. I usually buy three or four bundles at a time because they can be used for sooo many things.
4. Washi Tape
5. Letter Stickers if you like

Preparation (20 minutes)
- I prepared this activity ahead of time while the kids were playing in another room.
- First start with laying down the contact paper on a flat surface for your kids. Make sure its stick side up.
- Next secure the sheet with washi tape or paint tape.
- Then grab your black construction paper and cut out your shapes of choice. I chose the easiest shapes to make it easier to cut the centers out.
- Make sure to double the paper if you are preparing the activity for more than one kid. (take some of the work out!)
- Then lay the strips onto the sticky side of the contact paper.
- Next, grab you tissue paper squares or cut your tissue paper into squares!
- Your little one will then be able to fill in the centers of your black shapes!
- Next cut the unused parts of the contact paper to put on the back of the holiday shapes!
- Once you are done, turn the shapes over to see the creation!
- We put them on the door using washi tape and the kids added stickers for fun!
Take a look below!
Sticker and Decorating Fun
I chose to take it a step further and let the kids keep decorating their sun catchers.
This part is certainly open to preference, but I will say it was one of the funnest parts of the craft for the kids 🙂
